The Sudden death of Jimmy Albertson

The picture  we chose of Jimmy and Heather was always our favorite, it reminded us of a really great time... Now looking at it we feel  immense pain.  Jimmy and Heather were the best of friends. So many couples are unhappy, fighting, cheating ect. Jimmy and Heather truly treasured each other... Jimmy Albertson was a fantastic dad to all five of their children. We recently stopped by and found Jimmy building one if his legendary forts with Jude and Jackson, his youngest boys, a maze of pillows, cushions and sheets. If you had the pleasure of knowing Jimmy I'm sure you would agree he was the guy that made the cliche phrase "give you the shirt off his back" true. He always had a smile for you and a great way of getting you to laugh... He worked hard to support his family even on the days his gout flared up. Jimmy was the sole provider for his family, Heather suffers from a chronic illness that is debilitating on so many days. On October, 22nd tragedy struck this wonderful Sylvania family. Jimmy was outside watching his boys play and suddenly slumped forward, Heather who was just a short distance away ran outside. In that moment her entire world came crashing down all around her, she told us she so desperately tried to save him but he was already gone, she keeps saying she just wants it to be a nightmare, a nightmare she needs to wake up from... To look at Heather you see such devastation, fear and loss... Heather is one of the kindest woman I know, she is caring, honest and just so lost without her Jimmy. We are desperately seeking funds to keep her and the children in their home, funds so she is able to take care of Jimmy's final expenses. We worry about her having enough money to feed the kids, give them a good Christmas and can keep the family car. Jimmy had just began a new job so they were struggling financially. For anyone reading this please donate what you can, every dollar counts right now!! Heather said she has to try and find a job. I immediately thought she is ill and trying to home school Jackson and Jude, she just needs time! We are trying to provide her with the time she needs. This is truly a family in dispair they are praying together as we all are for God's grace and strength... God Bless all of those reading this, and we greatly appreciate your help!
